    I finally made a 4.0. No, not academically. I made a 4.0 of average daily posts. After almost 2.5 years I have achieved a milestone. I would like to thank all the little people who have helped me along the way. I certainly appreciate your small contributions.

    I hope none of you thought that I am no longer a 5 point Calvinist. My five points are still firmly in place ( much to the displeasure of my non-Cal friends).

    A 9.23 ?That sounds like something nefarious was going on. I've heard of folks getting even a 4.5 with extra-credit work -- but 9.23! Naw, there was some ponderous padding put in your numbers.Take away the fluff posts and you may get credit for less than half of that amount. Your 9.23 was the gross amount. Your true net score is about 3.9!
    On the other hand, my score of 4.0 represents all beef, and no fillers.It is my net score as well. Far be from me to boast about it though.

    That proves your quantity exceeded your quality.

    Preachers noted for their style are also known for their smile.I have substance and you have scruffiness.Before you bust a 10 make sure you don't bust a gut in the process.
    My feet are securely placed on the floor.But yours are clearly in need of a pedicure.

    As anyone can plainly see, I have trouble with repartee.Please someone keep me company!Before I post again, relieve me of this burden.(Ow!)

    Hey Pal. At the start of this thread you had a 9.23 and you have increased your count to 9.25.Congrats.On the other hand, I began with a 4.0 and ratched it up to an impressive 4.08. You had a .02 increase, and I have had a .08 increase. That's okay.You can sit down now. Standing ovations make me feel embarrassed.

    Now that is a Quality post. Looks like we are in exclusive company Rippon, seems that no one else here wants a piece of this.

    I don't think my post can be characterized as a quality one. I'm having to compromise on my quality posts in order to bring up my post count. So my quantity is more in evidence than my quality. Yes, we are in rarefied air on this thread.But other posters want to breathe normal air.

    Psalm 126:2-6
    2 Then was our mouth filled with laughter, and our tongue with singing: then said they among the heathen, The LORD hath done great things for them.
    3 The LORD hath done great things for us; whereof we are glad.
    4 Turn again our captivity, O LORD, as the streams in the south.
    5 They that sow in tears shall reap in joy.
    6 He that goeth forth and weepeth, bearing precious seed, shall doubtless come again with rejoicing, bringing his sheaves with him.

    Frivolity is good for us, therefore the light heartiness of this and other threads classifies as Quality as well as Quantity. :laugh:

    So Rip it up Rippy and have fun.

    Proverbs 17:22
    22A merry heart doeth good like a medicine: but a broken spirit drieth the bones.

    Hey Pal-- Where Are Ya'?

    As I am just a bit shy of the magical 4,000 figure, I thought I would do a little more math.

    Pal had a 9.23% per day post count. I had a 4.00%.He's down now to 8.40% -- a preciptous drop of .83%. I am up to 4.23% -- an increase of .23% per day.
